River trail- ridge trail?

So excited for this! THANKS!!!!!!! Headed out for a ski now . ..

Woo Hoo... and thank you! I'll check it out tomorrow.

Went out to skate ski TLP today at 2:30pm. Grooming was still happening. It was magic carpet! With a cold and a bit worked I easily took over a min off this years best time around all trails. Go ski! It's as good as it can be with maybe 6-8 inches of snow total. ... See MoreSee Less

It's supposedly going to snow here (Baker City, OR). Got a brand new set of Rosignol skies and poles at Salvation Army here for $15. READY!

Groomed X lake and Z lake

Didn't set track on Martin loop. To much snow machine traffic for the removal of the cabins

Two thumbs up for the new machine. Thumb down on the photo. I guess there are not many hours left with daylight to get a good photo. 😉

How are the trails at XY lake holding up? Supposedly more snow and colder temps are coming back this weekend but I wanted to get out Saturday morning if it’s not a sloppy mess. ... See MoreSee Less

Yesterday it was fast and icy. Lots of twigs etc.. set tracks aren't very functional for that reason but skating was okay.

Going to groom in the morning

Firewood! Tomorrow we will be clearing the Powers road property and need the firewood hauled off. Call Karl. 907 982 2591 ... See MoreSee Less

Ha ha. Jeff said we needed a trailer to be in the video.

I went out on X lake today. Over flow on the windy part of the lake. I roughed in the loop and figure 8. Should set nice tonight. A touch of cool weather this eve ... See MoreSee Less

Looked like it was a bit epic out there! Lots of over flow❗️glad my skis didn't get wet!

It was crazy. You could stay on top most of the places. Wasn't very deep. Old trail was ok. But couldn't see it most of the places

Thanks Mark! I went out on Classics yesterday and stayed on top most of the time but that windy section was bad!

Talkeetna camp and canoe on the move

How are the other trails holding up? Any new snow the last 3 days, or has it been rain?

Mark of the park report for 12/4/17
Groomed the ski trails Sunday with the big groomer.
Set track with the snow machine Monday before it got warm. They look great. I didn't get to put the multi-use trails on the lake though. When I was ready to go it started raining. Will get to it if the weather stays cool.

Ski hill trails are groomed. Only had the small groomer so the corners are not perfect. Figured get it packed and groomed before the rain. Ginzu would make it perfect. Lisa reported back they are awesome and probably set up from this morning. Enjoy ... See MoreSee Less
